So this weekend, my pals Lauren and Lizzie, and I went to our local Korean Barbecue place for our annual Galentine’s trip (a little early as technically it’s not supposed to be ’til 13th Feb but we’re all such busy bees!)
Nerds on Tour: Exploring Stratford
How is it STILL January? I finally managed to get out of Coventry for a bit, and wandered over to Stratford-upon-Avon for a little wander round the historic town. Even at peak-tourism times, it just has this air of quietness about it, but today it was also thankfully empty too.
Oh no she didn’t! Beauty and the Beast at the Belgrade* Review
One thing I’ve always loved at the Belgrade is their yearly panto, but I hadn’t been since I was at uni (ahem… A decade ago…) So when the Belgrade invited me to their press evening for the kick off show of the panto season I shouted IT’S BEHIND YOU, and while they were distracted, I snatched the tickets.

The Importance of a Bookshop (Revisited)
On September 27th 2018 the Big Comfy Bookshop in Coventry turned 4. As a surprise, I decided to gather all of the thoughts of people who’s lives had been made just that little bit brighter by having the shop there. On October 5th 2021, this shop announced it is closing it’s Coventry doors and I’m feeling quite emotional…

Giggling Squid and Halloween Shopping with Lizzie Bee
Had such a lovely day with one of my best friends the other day – I just had to write a little summary and post up some pics! Giggling Squid in Leamington was an excellent place to eat and take some cute pics! Also, we saved a dog.
Trying out Mana Spa – Coventry
I had such a decadent day, friends. It has been one of the most soothing and reinvigorating afternoons ever. There’s nothing quite like taking an afternoon off and trying something new… Especially if that something new happens to be a spa.
Coventry Assemble! Opening night for Assembly Festival Space
For the first time in what feels like so long I am BUZZING! I attended the opening night of Assembly Coventry – the new festival space now open in Coventry City centre as part of the City of Culture 2021. I was invited to a night of incredible entertainment, food and best of all… a festival atmosphere. How I’ve missed it! It’s been too long…
No filters: An afternoon tea story
HOW can anyone function in this heat? I’ve had the most lovely week off for my birthday with the most glorious weather but now it’s getting a bit much! My friend, Lizzie, and I sought out the shade when we visited the Laura Ashley tea rooms today for my final birthday celebration!
This Girl is on Fire! Rekindling my blogging spirit
Lately, I’ve been feeling quite sad that my blog has remained dormant for so long! After a brief chat with my pal, Lizzie, she’s told me that once she stopped worrying about stats, or “having something important to say” it took a weight off her mind and now she just posts what she feels. Reports on all her days out, her outfits, her feelings. That’s what I’ve been missing from blogging! That… and the additional time it takes to write.
